    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks before introducing his newly selected vice presidential running mate Mike Pence, governor of Indiana, during an event at the Hilton Midtown Hotel, July 16, 2016 in New York City. On Friday, Trump announced on Twitter that he chose Pence to be his running mate.

    David Robinson, a data scientist at Stack Overflow,set out to see where Donald Trump's tweets are coming from, NBC News reported.

    He determined that the angriest tweets from Trump's official Twitter account, @realDonaldTrump, were sent from an Android device — while more moderated messages that focused on events and campaign strategy were sent by an iPhone.

    Members of the Republican nominee's campaign staff are known to use iPhones. However, Trump uses a Samsung Galaxy, having sworn off Apple after that company's battle with the FBI over unlocking the phone of one of the San Bernadino attackers.

    Tweets from the Android phone were mostly sent in the morning and included emotionally charged words such as "badly," "crazy," "weak," and "dumb."The iPhone tweets come in the afternoon and early evening and include messages heavy with campaign hashtags, such as #trumptrain or #makeamericagreatagain.
